LYNNWOOD, Wash. - The Stumpjumpers Motorcycle Club (SJMC) will host the 43rd annual Desert 100 race and dual sport weekend event April 6-7.

Motorcycle school Puget Sound Safety Off-Road (PSSOR) will provide training. SJMC will provide free onsite tent camping and bike parking for the dualsport crowd along with a clinic area next to vendor row.

PSSOR will conduct two clinics April 5 at the event site in Odessa. For adventure and heavyweight dualsport riders, a “precision and control” class specifically tackling the terrain features needed to skillfully complete the Desert 100 dualsport ride. For Dirt riders and Dualsport riders, PSSOR will offer the level 2 dirt program, “traction management” plus bonus lessons using the riding areas near vendor row. 

During the Desert 100 dualsport ride April 6, PSSOR staff will ride the course, ready to assist riders as needed. Attendees can hang out at the PSSOR Adventure Zone in the evenings with staff members from PSSOR , Ride West BMW and Touratech for social time, movie night, seminars, demonstrations and more.

Ride West BMW will give away a “Back Country Discovery Route” training camp from PSSOR, a $1,285 value, as well as offering discounts and deals to attendees such as 15 percent off all parts, apparel, and accessories, $250 off any used motorcycle and $500 off any new BMW motorcycle, just by bringing a wristband from the Desert 100 in to their shop. Ridewest services all brands and carries a large selection of used bikes and they love trade-ins. Registration for the drawing will be on vendor row or stop in their Seattle shop with your wristband and register to win a $500 gift card.

Weather over the passes can always be a factor for the event so KGM Motorcycle Transport of Kent will provide round trip or one-way motorcycle transportation to the Desert 100 in Odessa from its warehouse or possibly Ride West BMW in Seattle.

Enclosed trailers will stay for the event with KGM staff and will be available should riders want their motorcycle secured when they are not riding. KGM says it accepts total responsibility for each motorcycle while in its custody.
